How To Choose a Pest Control Company

When selecting a pest control professional, there are several factors that you can consider to be sure you choose the best one for you. You might take into consideration a pest control company's qualifications and methods of treatment in addition to its customer reviews and years of experience. And of course, there's the cost of services to consider.

Below, we discuss each of these factors in more detail.

Does the company have a valid license and permits to perform pest control?

All pesticide applicators (and those who supervise them) are required to be certified at the state level. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets minimum standards of competency, but any pesticide applicators working in Massachusetts must be licensed via the necessary state regulatory agencies.

Is the company a member of any professional organizations?

Pest control companies also have the option to obtain additional certifications such as the GreenPro Service Certification. This certification is awarded once a company has shown that its treatment methods are more environmentally friendly and demonstrated that it also holds itself up to certain other standards, such as up-to-date employee training. A pest control company can also earn other certifications from QualityPro or similar trade organizations to further back up its methods and practices.

Pest control companies can also hold membership in various professional organizations. While not mandatory, membership in organizations like the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) or state-level organizations help demonstrate a company's reputability. Organizations like the NPMA provide access to education, resources, and a network of professionals with whom to share best practices.

Professional Experience and Specialties

Browsing a pest control company's website can tell you how long it has been in business and what species of pests it specializes in exterminating. Online reviews can also offer some insight into a company's experience dealing with specific pests. If you're unable to find this information online, you can try contacting the company directly.

Reviews and Recommendations

You can check a company's Better Business Bureau (BBB) rating, browse reviews on local review sites or social media, or check the standing of its license via the Massachusetts licensing board.

Cost of Services and Guarantees

Things like the type of pest being treated, the size of your house, your location, and other factors can all affect the price of pest control.

You can look into whether a company provides free on-site estimates (to determine if it fits in your budget) and what sort of guarantees it has. Often, a company will provide a guarantee that if it does not take care of your pest problem, it will continue treatment until it does.

Safety and Treatment Methods

When it comes to picking a pest control provider, you want to choose a company that will keep you, your family, and your pets safe. You'll likely also prefer an eco-friendly provider.

Safety

All pesticides that will be used (except those that pose only a minimum risk) need to be registered with the EPA. Your pest control provider should provide you with information on all the pesticides that they plan to use. They should inform you whether the pesticides are low toxicity or non-toxic, and if not, what safety precautions they plan to take.

Treatment Methods

You can ask if your pest control provider will begin with eco-friendly and lower-toxicity options before employing harsher chemicals.

Many companies are using Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to treat pest infestations with minimal personal or environmental risk. The steps of IPM are as follows:

  1. Identify problem pests and assess whether immediate action is needed.
  2. Decide on the safest course of action.
  3. Manage the pest problem using a combination of mechanical, physical, biological, and cultural controls.
  4. Use chemical controls only when required, and always along with other solutions for effective long-term pest management.
  5. Observe the results and continue with additional pest control as needed.

Common Household Pests in Woburn

Certain pests are more common in Woburn, and these are the ones to keep an eye out for. Some of these include the following:

  • Ants: Whether larger carpenter ants or smaller soils ants, these pests are found in most parts of Massachusetts. Carpenter ants can pose a more urgent issue than their smaller counterparts because they can do damage to your house.
  • Flies: Flies can be a year-round nuisance in your Woburn home, but they may be especially common when the weather is warmer. Flies might be found around sinks or in places where you keep food.
  • Mice: If your home has a mouse infestation, you may notice droppings around your house, or things like chewed wires. If your home has mice, they may be found in attics or in places where food is stored.
  • Spiders: These pests prefer moist, dark places and are commonly found in basements or attics.
